By Kaye ThorneCoaching for Change is an essential tool for anyone who wants to transform performance through the development of a coaching environment. Drawing upon the author’s experience, this book looks at how to create, develop and manage the process of change whether it be in one-to-one situations, team based or within organizations. It examines how change happens, both at the individual and organizational level and why, despite a desire to change, some people and organizations find it difficult to achieve.

With the emphasis on practical examples, the author shows how creating a coaching landscape can help organizations thrive through change. Key issues include coaching strategies to help prepare for change, the role of the coach within change management and motivation to change. The book includes case studies which describe how theory is converted to practice.
